-The Romance countries (Spain, Italies, Portugal, Romania, France, even Seborga) are bros. They smoke their cigs together after long ass meetings, they greet each other with kisses on the cheeks (ala Mediterranean/South-European).
-They also choose to speak one Romance language together, because they are all fluent in the main ones. (it’s often Italian because of the three Italians)
-They get really tactile with each other without any ambiguity, that’s just how they behave with most people but between them it’s tenfold.
-It amazes other nations how South Italy accepts to be touched like that. For them it’s so usual they don’t realize it may seem weird to others.
-They never have bonding sessions together because they end up speaking about the past and it either angers them all or make France and the Italies cry.
-Their main topics when they speak are wine production, food, paintings and songs. But they discuss a lot of things, everything that crosses their minds.
-The Italies claim they have made a grave for Rome, somewhere at their house but don’t allow anyone near it. Some resent them for it.
-While North & South Italy and Seborga are Rome’s grandchildren, the others are sort of “adopted sons” who really see Rome as a father figure. Nowadays, though, they realized how ambiguous his influence has been and still love him although he was not the nice guy of the story.
-Seborga never met Rome but he feels a connection to him and likes to listen to the tales galore Veneziano or the others dare to tell him.
perhaps more to come!!! because I love these headcanons. share some of yours!!

Rosaria is suddenly Mike Tyson. ⦁ Luciana wants animals but she can’t take care of them near as well as she can with plants, so she usually ends up with dead fish and a crying Flavia - Rosaria is suddenly a gravedigger ⦁ poor Andrea never gets a break from Flavia trying to tell her how she would look so cool with this hairstyle or so pretty in these heels and poor Flavia always winds up with an incoherent Spanish lecture ⦁ Rosaria used to have super long hair, but she will go to an extent to prove she’s right about something and cut it all off one day in a dare from Luciana - Flavia screamed - She fixed it up for her quickly and now sports a cute faux-hawk ⦁ Luciana is really good at gardening and is trying to teach Rosaria to do it well since it seems to be one of the only things she can’t grasp
Your eyelids are perfect the way they are. Don’t let people make you think you need makeup tools or surgery to change them.
Your skin is lovely the way it is no matter how dark or light. Don’t let people make you think you need to bleach it or change it with makeup or be ashamed of it.
Your body is amazing the way it is even if they don’t fit cultural or societal standards. Fat, thin, curvy, curve-less, big tummy, small breasts– as long as your body is keeping you alive is all that matters. That is its function, not being beautiful.
Your participation or lack there of in your culture does not make you any more or less Asian. If you are mixed and present one ethnicity over the other, you are no more or less Asian. The only one who can tell you your identity is you.
Your attraction, sexual or romantic, to women is not shameful or dirty or wrong. Your place on the gender spectrum is not shameful or dirty or wrong. They are not fetishes, they are not inherently pornographic. They are parts of who you are that make you you, and anyone that thinks otherwise is ignorant and in need of enlightenment.
The North and South
Nodes are two points on the Moon. In astrology, these points are
considered indicators of karma, lessons, and overall themes within
The South Node marks
what we already know. Some see this as lessons we have already
learned in our past lives, so we don’t need to learn them again.
The sign this Node falls in reveals the energies and knowledge
already within us, but it can also reveal our weaknesses. For those
who don’t believe in past lives, this is often seen as the lessons
we learn quickly, or in childhood.
The North Node, also
known as the True Node, marks the lessons we need to learn in this
lifetime. The sign this Node falls in reveals what challenges and
difficult positions we will be faced with in this life. This is a
director, pointing us towards our ultimate destiny or purpose.
Because these Nodes
are perfectly opposite, they will fall in opposing signs (ie. Aries
and Libra, Taurus and Scorpio, etc.), also known as sister signs.

“No!” said he, “I put it to the touch once, and I lost it all. Let her go, — with her stony heart, and her beauty; — how set and terrible her look is now, for all her loveliness of feature! She is afraid I shall speak what will require some stern repression. Let her go. Beauty and heiress as she may be, she will find it hard to meet with a truer heart than mine. Let her go!” And there was no tone of regret, or emotion of any kind in the voice with which he said good-bye; and the offered hand was taken with a resolute calmness, and dropped as carelessly as if it had been a dead and withered flower.
